You could say chocoholism runs thick in my blood veins.
My father ate chocolate mouse every single day when he was in his twenties, still drinks chocolate milk, and will destroy a bowl of raw chocolate chip cookie dough if given the opportunity…so you could say I just can’t help it.

If you’re familiar with the Paleo Sheet Pan Pancakes recipe I posted many months ago, I have version 2.0 for you right here, right now!

The concept behind sheet pan pancakes is simple: You make a batch of pancake batter and rather than hovering over the stove to cook them individually, you simply pour the batter on a sheet pan and bake it, thus eliminating much of the time that goes into preparing pancakes so you can spend it with your family. Poor pancake flipping skills? No worries, there is no flipping involved in this approach.

My mealtimes all revolve around protein. If you follow me on Instagram, I probably sound like a broken record, as I have mentioned many times in the past, I take a but first, protein approach to food. I make sure I get at least 20 grams of protein at every meal, and in the event that I snack between meals, I make sure my snacks are protein-centric as well.
In addition to making sure I get adequate protein throughout the day, I also tend to drink a smoothie for either breakfast or lunch. That may seem like a pretty light meal, but my smoothies are typically on the higher calorie end in the way of smoothies, and have a pretty decent macro profile.
I’ve found that having one liquid meal per day also helps with digestion – simply put, liquid is far easier for your body to process than solid food. In this sense, protein smoothies are currently a big deal in my life, as I usually drink them after I workout to replenish muscle glycogen and feed my broken down muscle fibers with protein.
